Open Street Maps

This is the wikipedia for maps, which I think is a kind of a ubuntu way of life for the world. Everyone with a GPS should log their travels and upload the roads into the Open Street Maps!

I wish I had a GPS so I could easily add to this wonderful project!

Open Office 3.0 Calc vs Excel

This post might be edited later, or further posts will follow.

Excel (and Access) is the benchmark no doubt when it comes to the two Office packages. If Open Office can do what excel can do, and DO IT THE SAME, then there's no reason to pay for MS Office...

Anyway, here is something that Open Office Calc does differently, and I think it's cool, MS Excel does this differently (it grows the selection to the width of the merged cells).
